Team Member Status & Planning Improvements

Individually, we delivered on the majority of our personal responsibilities. The 3-week plans in addition to the project plan were effective in designating specific tasks to each team member.

This project plan changed over time as new tasks were created. Planning specific dates and deadlines were something we lacked in planning during this phase. These dates would help create a sense of urgency in completing tasks faster.

Lowered Importance & eliminated



Form the risk management, we learned that the total risk may be low early on in the project timeline, but as subsystems and the overall design are solidified, new risks arise that were not previously obvious.
